It is a shame to see such a well organised mall type establishment struggling to survive . Lots of basic craft shops with a lot of cheap holiday gifts. Many units shut and spookily no people visiting the day we visited. There was A pottery which was shut and a crystal jewellry craftsman making some nice items.
However we came across a 5 star, top notch glass arts manufacturer-coloured fired glass plates ,bowls even sinks. Absolutely beautiful colours and has offered to make a custom piece for us during our next visit to barbados. We purchased 8 pieces of display / dinner ware. Very pleased with skilled craftsmanship , the firing of the colours and indeed the value for money.

This place consists of a lot of updated shops, containing a lot of local handicrafts, so a big variety in one place, as well as a place to eat. The only thing is that some shops may not be open all the time,but enough there so time is not wasted. Great area for views as well.

Several establishments not open, not posted what times were. But those open most interesting. Beautiful woodwork and sculpting in one shop, some galleries with artwork. Owners and artists very willing to talk about their work when present.

What a lovely little arts center near the port in Bridgetown. If it only had more shops! Conveniently located near the docs, we found a lovely store The Monkey Pot, for local arts & crafts.

The houses in this craft center is very lovely and colorful. All these shops are painted in difference colors. Good for photos but not good for shopping ,their handicrafts is not as good as in Central America,, besides, they ask for a radicular high price.NO BARGAIN AT ALL,that's is why no much visitors by the time we were there.
